Dancing at the Palais

7:15 pm pre-concert lecture with Catherine Turocy (New York Baroque Dance Company) and John Powell (University of Tulsa)

Our season opener features a full Baroque orchestra of strings and winds plus the
New York Baroque Dance Company, in a program of instrumental suites from two vibrantly colorful French Baroque operas, both first seen at the Palais-Royal in Paris. Period choreography and period instruments recreate a refined artform that was de rigueur throughout Europe during the 17thand 18th centuries.
